I guess they wanted to keep it simple (??) and not have too many classes. The Vision class has a 10,000 ton spread between the six ships, and the first two bear hardly no resemblance to the other four. Four were built by Chantiers l'Atlantique in France and the other two by Kvaerner in Finland. I think these yards all later became STX under one company.
